I feel like the air conditioning on a lot of subway trains was turned off too early.
Honestly, I have no idea how the AC works on the trains.  Don’t know if there is a thermostat or what, but I feel like the AC was cut.  Seems to happen every year.
There was a bit of a [...]

Do you think the MTA should allow larger scale subway station takeover ads?  For example, our Canadian brothers and sisters have this sort of advertising on their turnstiles.

What about NYC?
If not, why?

Today I witnessed probably one of the coolest things I think I’ve seen on the subway to date.
There was a small group of teenage kids standing just outside the turnstiles.  You could tell just by looking at them that they were up to no good.
Couldn’t really tell how old they were.  I’m guessing they were [...]

Did you see a higher than average amount of foreign tourists on your train this morning?  I sure did.
There was a large group of what sounded like Swedish tourists on one side of me.  Then on the other end were a bunch of Germans.  There’s definitely no mistaking the German language.
I wonder if this is [...]

Subway super hero Wesley Autrey is mourning the loss of his surrogate son.
Roy Huntley, 24, was found on a Manhattan street on Sunday with a gunshot wound to the head.  Police believe he may have gotten into a fight with his attackers.

She’s not very tall.  Average height I guess.  However, when she’s in a [...]

Friday Video Fun

Posted on September 19th, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in Video

A guy who does a dead on impression of the “subway door closing” tone.  (Just when you thought you’ve seen it all.)
Happy Friday everyone.

I saw it with my own eyes.  My jaw dropped to the ground.
I’m sure you’ve seen a homeless person with a stack of used MetroCards standing at a turnstile swiping away in hopes to find a card with a ride still left on it.  I do applaud them for trying to be legal about getting [...]
